Hi.

This guy sells this inner part of the forks as Yz450f 2010.

http://articulo.merc...or-completo-_JM

 

I see both forks are different: one has the spring, the other one seems to have the cartridge.

 

Is this image right? i mean, this is really a YZ450f 2010 fork? 

 

i was searching for them, because I want to put them on my 08 Wr450, i thought the inner part would be compatible.....

 

(and the reason why many people sell the inner part is because they replace them for ohlins or other rally suspensions)

That is the KYB SFF fork

 

You don't want those forks, and, you will have to bring over the wheel, caliper, and bracket to make them work anyway.

 

You wan't the 2006 YZ250/450 fork for a direct swap

Ok,

but that in the pictures, is the actual YZ450f 2010?

 

Why is 2006 so good? it´s strange that many people preffer an "older"

The WR clamps, axel, hub, and caliper all come from the 2006 YZ model

The forks don't but are interchangeable.

The fork is the KYB SSS fork, one of the best spring and oil cartridge fork ever made

It's not about 'prefering older'....new forks are split funtction or AIR FORKS designed for 2 hours of riding max at a time, without some form of adjustment or service.

 

If you want to spend a few months figuring out how to make 2010 forks fit, go ahead.

 

You CANNOT swap fork internals, period.

 

Most of the new mx stuff is obsesivley focusing on weight.....which is the least of your problems off road

 

Do you self a favor and stop comparing track bike parts to off road parts. 

It's a different world.
